Single Homeless People
If you are single and would benefit from living somewhere where you will receive support to help you live independently in the future and deal with any other issues in your live, you can apply for one of Stay’s supported housing schemes.
Working with Telford and Wrekin Council, local housing associations, private landlords and the Community Health and Enterprise Centre (CHEC), Stay provides a range of shared and self-contained supported housing for young single people across Telford.
The support available in any of Stay’s supported housing aims to equip tenants (or licence holders in shared properties) with the essential skills needed for independent living, and a positive and productive lifestyle. This is done through planned support and regular keywork sessions with a dedicated and trained Support Worker. The Worker will work with you to agree and complete a programme of support that is centred around your needs and aspirations.
Our aim is to be creative and innovative in our approach to support, using individual support and group activities to develop confidence, enthusiasm and a positive outlook.
Supported housing is allocated via the Thrive Gateway based on your needs and your agreement to accepting the support available. If you think you would benefit from supported housing, you can download the application form below.

Supported Housing for Young Families
If you have up to 2 children under the age of 5 who live with you, and would benefit from living somewhere where you will receive support to help you live independently in the future and deal with any other issues in your live, you can apply for one of Stay’s young families supported housing schemes.
In partnership with Bromford Housing and Telford and Wrekin Council, Stay runs 2 specialist supported housing schemes for young parents (including couples) with children. Both schemes accommodate young parents aged between 16 and 32 years of age and up to two children aged 0-5 years of age.
All of the 2 bedroomed flats are part furnished, and each scheme also has a garden for the parents and children to use. Each scheme is staffed Monday-Friday 9-5.
In addition to the support we provide to parents to develop their independent living skills, benefits and employment advice and personal budgeting, the support we provide is designed to teach young parents to live independently with their children, ultimately building a better future for the whole family.
Supported housing for young families is allocated by the Single Allocation Panel based on your needs and your agreement to accepting the support available.
